A bit about me: Most recently I completed a NSERC and CIFAR Global Scholars postdoc at UBC in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. Prior to that I obtained my PhD from the Joint Program at MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Geology and Geophysics, a MSc at the U of A in EAS and the Department of Biological Sciences, and a BScH at Queen's University in Environmental Biology. 

Please see my lab webpage for more information about me and my research:


Using molecular biogeochemistry to explore the interplay between microbial metabolism, the global carbon cycle, and climate.

EAS 212 - The Oceans

An introduction to the physics and chemistry of the oceans. Topics covered include ocean currents, the ocean floor, origins and buffering of the chemistry of the oceans. The role of the oceans in determining past and present climates is introduced. Prerequisite: Any 100-level Science course. [Faculty of Science]

Winter Term 2022
EAS 250 - Biogeography

The factors controlling global distribution of plants and animals will be covered from ecological and historical perspectives. Techniques for the analysis of biogeographic patterns, including paleoecology, remote sensing, and phylogenetics. Ecosystem responses to global change, including species migration, disturbance ecology, and invasions. May require field trips. If so, will require payment of additional student instructional support fees. Refer to the Tuition and Fees page in the University Regulations section of the Calendar. Prerequisite: EAS 100, BIOL 108 or SCI 100.
